Pioneer Remedies

When Nathaniel Fairbanks was bitten by a rattlesnake on the trail west, what did some of the brethren apply to the wound to help provide relief?
a.                  Mud
b.                  Axle grease
c.                   Turpentine
d.                  Lard
Yesterday’s answer:
a.        On one of the cornerstones of the temple at Far West
Wilford Woodruff was ordained to the Holy Apostleship on 26 April 1839.  That’s not so unusual, what makes this extraordinary is the fact that he was ordained on one of the Cornerstones to the Temple at Far West, Missouri.
